The Ginninderry project is important to meet housing demand in the ACT and neighbouring areas. Planned facilities include new schools, shops, the heritage farmhouse precinct and new community infrastructure, such as halls, child care centres and medical centres. Sustainable transport will be the number one choice.
The services and facilities at Ginninderry will benefit new residents and people already living in surrounding areas. As the community grows, the demand for new services will stimulate the local economy over many years into the future. New businesses will be encouraged to set up in Ginninderry and surrounds, including renewable energy and other innovative businesses.
Value-add infrastructure such as solar power and some stormwater recycling for irrigation of public parks and spaces are also being provided. The use of innovative technologies, flexible planning and modern infrastructure ensures that resources are used efficiently and provide the framework for a resilient community that evolves over time.
